If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

Meet Arabelle! This sweet 9-month-old Basenji mix was found as a stray in rural South Carolina, but is getting her 2nd chance thanks to a great foster family here in the DC area! Arabelle can be a bit shy at first, but once she warms up, she’s a playful and affectionate pup who loves to snuggle. Arabelle is crate- and house-trained, and is improving on leash every day (though she does love to let the neighborhood squirrels know who’s boss). Arabelle is good with cats and with other dogs, and great with her foster family’s kids, too! She loves exploring, playing with toys, and going for walks. Arabelle will do best in a calm environment (ideally with a fenced yard) and needs an adopter who will continue her consistent training, to ensure this good pup becomes a great dog!

Hello there, PoPville! This is Trixie, and if you can’t already tell by looking, she cute. Trixie was found fending for herself outside as a kitten, but was lucky enough to find a nice family to help her. Now Trixie is about a year old, and looking for her forever home. Trixie is a cat’s cat – she loves dozing in the sun, looking out the window, and responding to gentle humans with soft purrs. Trixie loves her people but would likely prefer to be the center of your attention, so would love to be your “one and only”. She’s a beautiful little cat just looking for the right lap to call her own – is it yours? Find out more about adopting pretty Trixie here.
